"Opened my eyes to how my body really works..."

"My name is Meghan Richards and I'm a 45-year-old mother of two children and a runner, as well as an equestrian athlete. In late 2014 I amped up my running in preparation for my first half marathon. I had typically run anywhere between 3 and 6 miles several times a week, at a fairly fast pace (approx 8 min miles. Sometimes faster).

  In January 2015 I started to feel some pain just prior to the half marathon which was the first week of February. I backed off my running a little bit and went to the race anyway, in pain, but completing the half marathon in under two hours. And since then, I have had intense pain in my sciatica and even more so in my IT band, all on the left side. I had never experienced pain quite like this. I rested for more than six weeks after the race and then began coming back very slowly.

  I foam rolled, went to 2 different chiropractors, did tens therapy, acupuncture, rested more, tried varying my routine, running slower, more rest sessions, more acupuncture, chiro, massages, and stretching. This went on for almost 9 months. (On a side note- I have always been amazingly flexible. I stretched daily, sometimes twice a day or more. Often for 20-30+ minutes.

  It would bring temporary relief from the pain.) Despite all these efforts to heal, I was still in incredible pain. I gained a little weight, and began to feel depressed and discouraged that I would ever run again, let alone be pain free as well as physically fit. It was my husband who encouraged me to go to Fitnesstek. He said he had heard that Kevin Votta was a good guy from Penn State (my husband's alma mater too!) and since I had tried everything else, why not try this approach called Muscle Activation Technique.

  My first session was just about eight or nine weeks ago. My IT band pain was in my left leg. In fact, me entire left leg was always in pain. The glute, the thigh, and I had actually lost feeling down to my foot. I really wasn't very hopeful that Kevin could help me. But during our first session and through an hour long series of muscle strength testing, we discovered that my left leg was not a problem at all! My left leg had been compensating for weakness in my right leg.

  Through the specific muscle tests he performed, it was very obvious to me that this was in fact the case. I was given a series of exercises to do at home and come back in a week. The next week I was a little bit better. Kevin added additional exercises and homework for me to do. I came back the following week and was even a little bit stronger. I was then able to start short, slow runs.

  Six weeks later and being somewhat diligent in my exercise and homework, I now have absolutely no pain in my IT band at all, my glutes are firing much better, and I have no numbness or tingling in my left leg. I am running three days a week and I wake up pain-free. I am also horseback riding again and Kevin has given me specific strengthening exercises to help my riding as well. The most amazing thing I learned during all of this was that the stretching I was doing was actually hurting me and not helping me. Not only was my hyperflexibility causing small muscle tears, but also a joint instability. I haven't stretched in 2 months and if you had told me a couple of months ago that I could even go 2 days without stretching I would've said you were crazy! MAT has completely changed everything that I thought to be true about my body.

  It is opened my eyes to how my body really works and how I can do very simple things to maintain strength, joint stability, and a balanced body. And I say this after having been an athlete for the past 20 years. If you have been experiencing pain from any issue whether it is caused by an acute injury, a physical disability with which you were born, or chronic pain of any sort, I urge you to try MAT. Being pain free is the most wonderful thing you can do for yourself!"

New Mom Gets BACK into the Best Shape of Her Life!

"Kevin is an enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable personal trainer. He is very dedicated to helping his clients achieve their goals. He uses different types of exercise so that you are constantly challenging your body to help his clients get the results they want.

Personally, I have hired Kevin twice. I needed help getting in shape after the births of each of my children. I achieved great results after the birth of my first child and was in the best shape of my life. After my second child, I was having a hard time getting my body back.

Kevin was very creative with the exercises that we did on each visit and made each workout challenging but still fun! Kevin helped motivate me and I began seeing noticeable changes in my body in a very short time."

"I can hardly believe what I am now capable of doing, all within a few short months...'"

"To those interested in changing their life,  I’d like to say a few words and explain what a difference exercising with a trainer has made in my life and in particular, working with Kevin Votta.  I’ve always known what a difference exercising can make; in fact I’ve tried it on my own for years but without any noticeable results.  I reluctantly went to Fitness Tek where I met Kevin.  I liked the fact of working in a private studio instead of being on display in a health club.  Kevin worked out a program to fit my individual needs and limitations.  Needless to say, the results have been incredible.  I can hardly believe what I am now capable of doing, all within a few short months. 

On a recent check-up with my doctor since I started working out, my doctor was more than pleased with the results of my blood work.  My cholesterol numbers were cut in half and my triglycerides are nearing normal….and need I tell you how much energy I now have and how great I feel!  I can’t explain Muscle Activation Techniques but I do know that Kevin is a certified specialist and I do know that IT WORKS.  I have gone to the studio with soreness in my back or legs causing difficulty with walking and Kevin is able to work on a particular muscle(s) and I’m up walking like new.  Kevin is an extremely knowledgeable and professional trainer who is indeed a pleasure to work with."

"Allowed my shoulder to regain the strength it had so I can go play baseball in college."

"My name is Patrick Dudkiewicz, I play baseball at Labette Community College in Parsons, Kansas and I went to Fitness Tek to work with Kevin on my left shoulder because it popped out during a summer league game. I went through the MAT recovery process and it allowed my shoulder to regain the strength it had so I can go play baseball in college. My shoulder has been great since then and there hasn't been a problem since the MAT.

I am currently at a JUCO in Kansas playing baseball with hopes to playing at another level. I took a year off thinking baseball was done for me but I joined a summer league which led to my scholarship I received to play first base for Labette Community College. With the help from Kevin at Fitness Tek it allowed me to proceed to following a dream I have had since I first picked up a bat at age 5. One thing I learned is that when you think your done with something just give it another shot especially if there is a dream your trying to follow."

"By Working With Fitness-Tek, I Was Able to Stay Out of Pain Longer..."

"The combination of working with Fitness-Tek and SJCPTC was the magic ticket.  I have spinal stenosis and degenerative discs.  I had amazing results from  the kind, caring and extremely talented therapists at SJCPTC, but the addition of working with Fitness–Tek helped the work that the therapists at SJCPTC did ‘hold’ longer. 

SJCPTC could get me out of pain (an amazing feat in and of itself), but when I started working with Fitness–Tek, I was able to stay out of pain longer. I travel extensively and put a lot of stress on an already damaged spine and joints.  Now, travel and long days of standing are much less painful, and, I am ‘back to normal’ much more quickly when I return.  A big thank you to both SJCPTC and Fitness-Tek!"

Busch Gardens asked her to get off the ride because she was too big for the seat harness...now shes' a fitness instructor!

"Simply put, Kevin and his employees are the BEST! Stop shopping around because you have found the best there is out there when it comes to trainers and nutrition coaches. Kevin and his team were always honest, on time, courteous and professional, and not to mention a pleasure to work with...

I made several attempts to get my health on the right track, but to no avail. At my heaviest I was 295 lbs. If you’re feelinglike you can’t do this, let me reassure you that YOU CAN DO THIS and YOU MUST! I will leave you with this… never give up, keep focused, have fun, laugh hard, make one choice at a time, sweating is good, change sometimes hurts, if you think your giving it your all dig a little deeper and give some more, and remember YOU ARE WORTH BEING HEALTHY! Thanks Kevin for teaching me that I’m worth it!"

"Opened an Energy Flow that Has Been Blocked for Years..."

"I went to see Kevin Votta at Fitness-Tek because of a problem with my neck. That problem has resolved, but the benefits I have received have been greater than I could have predicted. 

One big surprise was the sudden increase in my energy level as soon as he taught me a series of exercises to do with my right leg. I have since learned that aligning my hips using these exercises may have opened an energy flow that has been blocked for years. 
During each session with Kevin I gain some strength and find out more of what my body can do.  

I am 69 years old, and intend to remain active for many years to come. I am thankful for Kevin's expert help in reaching my goal."

"I had a list a mile long with all of the reasons why I should never work with a personal trainer:"

  • I had back surgery at 17 years old.
  • My sister was hospitalized numerous times growing up with an eating disorder and I didn’t want to restrict my food or over-exercise.
  • The last thing I wanted was to have some muscle guy yell at me about stuff I already knew.

"I had no idea that MAT existed or what it did until I experienced it. How muscles in my feet had anything to do with my back pain was beyond me… and Kevin told me over and over again that I wasn’t eating enough which blew my mind. Once I finally embraced my program and did what he recommended, it was not long before the results followed.

In 8 weeks, I lost 15 pounds and over 15 inches around my body. I learned the science behind my plan and it made a profound impact on my life. More important than looking better, I felt better. And more important than feeling better, I stopped constantly thinking about it! I didn’t realize how much brain power I put into what/how/when I ate or exercised until I stopped! I committed to making the biggest difference I could with as many other people, so they could focus on what really matters to them."

"Just two months ago, I had to stop doing one of my favorite exercises, pull ups. Not only am I back 100%, I'm back stronger and free of pain."

"I have been a Physical Conditioning Specialist for over 12 yrs and I have experience all kinds of different modalities and technics with varying results and sometimes none at all. Kevin has mastered MAT to the point that there is no doubt in my mine about put myself and my clients in his hands.

The instant and permanent relief and healing of his technics makes him a sure confident of my trust in him to maintain a healthy body for me and my clients. Just two month ago I had to stop doing one of my favorite exercises, pull ups. Not only am I back 100%, I'm back stronger and free of pain. Stop being in pain and schedule an appointment with Kevin ASAP. I guarantee you you will thank me! Thank you Kevin for fixing my shoulder."

Freedom from Neck Pain - With NO Surgery!

"Hello my name is Paula Bickford, I am a 59 yr old that was suffering from chronic neck and shoulder pain and thinking I might finally need surgery to fuse 4 vertebra in my neck. I was recommended to seek out treatment by an MAT specialist by my therapist at St.John-Clark Pain Treatment Center. I reached out to Kevin the head MAT specialist and owner of Fitness-Tek and made an appointment to get my muscles checked out! I was amazed by the difference MAT made my pain level dropped within a few weeks and surgery was again averted.   I continue to see Kevin once a week to this day! Thanks for keeping my muscles firing Kevin!"
